How do I use the confidential notes?

Confidential notes1:50

"How do I use the confidential notes?"

The "Confidential notes" page is a place to write notes that're only available to people who've got full payroll admin permissions.

To add to a person's confidential notes:

  1. First, select the person on: MenuPeople
  2. Then click: PayConfidential notes
  3. Click into the "Confidential notes" box.
  4. And type in your notes.
  5. And finally, click: Save

You may decide to add "Confidential notes" about:

  • Disciplinary actions.
  • Changes in pay rate.
  • Managerial decisions.
  • Notes about final pay.
  • And much more.

To see a history of previously recorded notes:

  1. First, hover your mouse over: Confidential notes
  2. Then next to "Confidential notes", click the three dots: (on the far left)
  3. Then click: History
  4. And finally, a panel slides out on the right, listing all the notes that've been recorded in the past.

Keep in mind that:

  • The "Confidential notes" won't be visible to org admins or regular people.
  • In addition, even if you're a full payroll admin yourself, you can't see the "Confidential notes" page about yourself.

For advanced usage:

  • Remember, that any employee may have the right to request a copy of their own: Confidential notes
  • The employee may have request rights under GDPR article 15: "Right of access by the data subject"

And that's it! That's everything you need to know about using confidential notes!
